    Thanks Tim. I read your post on that thread and that explains why I'm having a hard time identifying many males. They really are a flock of bloody cross dressers! Must be descended from British stock! Maybe Befishin' was right! I did see a couple of darker ones that looked good, but most look like relative Plain Janes.
    They usually show up when about 4 or 5 other species are on my lawn, and its hard to get outside and sneak around the corner of the house without spooking them all. On a good day I can hit a beer can at 25 yards with the old Crossman that I confiscated from my nephew. Getting a strutting cock Starling in my sights might actually be some fun! I don't look forward to skinning it and preserving the skin, though. I wonder, is it considered cheesy to pluck off the feathers and stuff them into a little plastic bag? When going thru my stash, I found a bag of some small "Partridge" feathers that I bought like that.
